    This has been my experience, they ended up looking Sri Lankan:Tamil. Remember Indians are very diverse.
    I hope to enlighten people with my answers & posts.

    Folks are forgetting here that that most east indians are part black asian in phenotype.I did NOT say black african in origin,i said black asian.

    Meaning many blacks live in asia too and not african but asian in dna.


    Some indians are black by the way.There are a some black africans in asia but most blacks in asia or asian.Meaning thier dna is more native to asia.

    Getting back to my point.
    So if a black person from asia or africa etc.. have kids with someone who looks brown or intermediate in phenotype,that person is really more black in dna and phenotype then some here realize.

    Of course some indians are white looking and if someone have kids with them that look black it will be no different then some other white and black relations you see in many south amecan nations or in modern north africa or arabia,if you get my point.

    The reason i say that because alot of white looking types in india or arabia etc.. have black dna themselves and many do not look as pure on average like most european types.

    Chilli is African American and Bengali. I spoke with her and she said her ancestor was from Bangledesh. She and Foxy Brown share a cousin(Trini) so I'm not sure if Chilli is Trini as well or not. Nicki Minaj also has Indian from her mother's side.

    I think Chili said she had Arab ancestry at one point (along with Native American). With these women you never know when they are telling the truth or lie,they say things to boost up their exoticness like Ciara.Also aren't Trini Indians directly from India instead of Bangladesh, When did you speak with her?

    I spoke with her earlier last year. We were talking about our Blindian roots. She said her ancestor was Bengali. She never spoke about being Trini, but I know this girl is related to Foxy Brown and Chilli. She identifies herself as Trini & Asian. So I'm assuming Chilli may be Trini, I'm not too sure of that relation. She may have done a DNA test and found Bengali relatives. Her family believes that the ancestor was Arab/Indian but I've noticed a lot of Bengalis identify as Arab when they really aren't.

    Ciara has personally never claimed to be anything other than African American.

    Trini Indians are from before India was split into modern-day nations of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

    Half-black half-Indians generally look fully Indian, I think because the hair generally is somewhere between jewfro (which is found in native Indian groups from north to south) to wavy and even straight. The difference is in physical stature. Indian subcontinent people have a tradeoff between lean muscle mass and bulk. The people that are tall and broad in the northwest are generally packing less strength per unit muscle, while the hardy stronger farmer types of east/southeast/south are scrawny and short in build. So Indian-black mixes look just like taller/broader eastern farmer Indians.

    This Jamaican dude is 50-50 Afro/Indian:


    But then again, compare him to American-raised (gym-going, non-malnutritioned) full Indian Keralite (south Indian state) Jomy George:

    Nickis real last name is Maraj, so from what i heard it is her maternal grandfather who is indian, the rest of her ancestry is black.
